Last night Bon Iver, the Eau Claire, Wisconsin-based band of troubadours founded and led by Kanye West collaborator Justin Vernon, kicked off the second leg of the band's tour in support of last year's Grammy-winning album Bon Iver, Bon Iver.
The band were in far-from-the-woods Las Vegas, playing the 4,000-seat venue The Joint. Here's how it went...

!een prepping for this Bon Iver gig by crying softly to myself and inventing meaningless words with vague Biblical connotations. Go time!— Jason Bracelin (@JasonBracelin) April 13, 2012
There is a mosh pit warning up at The Joint tonight. If you start or participate in a mosh pit at a Bon Iver show, please kill yourself.— Ⓥ Gin Eff (@Dr_Jen) April 13, 2012
